i don't know what to compare it to.. it's not quite university, often more practically, profession, oriented like teaching etc.. but now everything here is being turned into universities, so they're disappearing.

I'd say the herring and yodelling is more down to personal taste. Shrugging

I think in my days at høgskole the correct(est) translation was college university. Which I am certain clarifies the whole thing. Razz

"Hogskole" is suspiciously close to "Hogwarts". Just sayin'.

The closest American analogy to høgskolen in terms of their overall purpose would be community college or perhaps a small non-research focused satellite campus of a state university system since they have the ability to grant Bachelor's degrees.

Yes that university, NTNU, is mostly known as a well-respected natural science university, but they also have a humanities faculty way out in the sticks. Not as well-known or well-respected, but then academia in Norway is mostly known for natural sciences, and not so much for the humanities. Shrugging

hey, I just spent 2.5 weeks working on a grant proposal, only to have someone else look it over and tell me what crap it was and I'd be safer not submitting it at all.

but you ain't got that choice, so take 6 hours break, then dive in with semi fresh eyes and fix anything you can.

Take a break & re look at what you've done. Maybe its the "rabbit in the headlights" moment ? Walk away & you will see things differently after a good break, then you'll know if & what to change I love you

Yes, and don't overly give in to self judgement, Nora.

I finished my Master today, with an A, and I had plenty of doubts along the way..

Damn, sounds almost a haiku Shocked
